Welcoming Hydrangeas in the Porch

 Today is preparation day for the Carols Service tomorrow evening. As we do not have electricity or potable water, the bakkie has been loaded with gas cylinder and stove top so we can boil the water we are taking with us for coffee and tea. Paraffin lamps have been filled and their glass flues polished. Candles in discarded 2Litre plastic bottles with a sand base will light the paths. Secateurs for cutting the flowers in the cemetery which will be arranged in both the Schoolhouse and Church. Linen for tablecloths is allready waiting at the church but we need to lay out cups and saucers.Special candles will light the organ and piano. And we are collecting a piano stool along the way. So the car is laden.

 Along the way we need to purchase milk and tea, coffee we have. And we need to call around at Aunt Olive Pike to pick Shasta daisies to supplement the flowers we plan to harvest.


 This afternoon, Monday November 5 2016, it is rehearsal time for our Carol Service scheduled for Thursday. This is the first Carol Service to be held at the Church in decades. Naturally we are nervous, but excited. As the Clumber Community we are viewing the Service on Thursday a Thanksgiving Service as well due to the Lord's provision in getting so many of our jobs done on the repair and restoration list.

Lots more needs to be done and our fund raising will continue unabated in 2017.
